David has acted on numerous high-profile direct and indirect tax cases before the courts and Tax Tribunals, including two cases before the Supreme Court. In addition to his vast experience in HMRC litigation, David also acts in professional negligence and mis-selling actions and other tax-related commercial litigation. He is currently acting for approximately 250 high net worth individuals in a large class action arising from the Ingenious Film Partnerships, which is one of "The Lawyers"' Top 20 cases of 2018.
David has been acting for 250 city professionals and entrepreneurs in an action against Ingenious Media, Coutts, UBS and other IFAs for estimated losses of over £100m. This large group action is being brought by HNW individuals (including a number of very well-known personalities) in a variety of film production and video games partnerships promoted by Ingenious Media Partnerships and said to have significant tax benefits in addition to commercial return from investment. Clients were sold investments into partnerships directly by Ingenious Media, or were advised to invest by a number of banks or IFA’s. Proceedings were issued in July and November 2015 against Ingenious Media, UBS, Coutts, HSBC and a number of other IFAs. The case is ongoing
